      I will drop the ring four someone if they want it, I'm not gonna sit on here and lie like most ppl on this thread and even say I'd wear this ring, the game is plenty hard enough for me. I do believe some are good and would wear four a challenge but not as many as I see here talking smack, I'll run into you guys eventually and you'll probably run off and heal , but just my thought lol, easier said then done , the ring is useless to me, but ds3 they did great job on love the game, still think there should be a practice dummy or something in the fire link shrine, majula, etc, to see exactly what damage were doing because so many enemies have different strengths and weaknesses I'd like to know exactly how much output I'm doing, and wow there are a lot of weapons on this game and cool spells four a mage like myself,

        I find it incredibly dumb how you only obtain the ring near the end of the game. I think you should be able to get it at the very start so you can play through the entire game with much more difficulty in case you want a fun little challenge.

          I would like if it gave at least a visual change to the player when being equipped. Kind of like "look i wear the hardmodering im so kewl". Dont know what. Maybe a glow, or something unique when using a weapon, maybe make the player character bigger or get flames around the playermodel (similar to the endscene of the game where the character basically burns).
          Would be cool.

            I disagree that this ring should give you some hidden or small bonus (besides something purely cosmetic maybe). i disagree with the notion that 'EVERY item in the game needs a purpose, even if it's just a small one! There's no point to an item with NO reason to use it!' there IS a point to this item, it's purely to challenge yourself. Just like the plank shield, and just like the broken straight sword, both items that are just plain awful in every respect, with no redeeming qualities at all. Do these items need some random bonus properties that would actually make them really good? Of course not. There are plenty of useful items in the game. I believe that these games should have a little something for EVERYBODY - that includes people who deliberately want to use the worst items, items that are the worst they could possibly be.

              For everyone wondering what the purpose is: it is to troll you. Yes like the amulet, but also for the ringmaster achievement this is the ONLY ring that is not just there for the taking (covenant rewards not counting since you will get them eventually if you just keep feeding items to the covenant).

                if you kill the crystal lizard in the cemetery of ash while wearing this he will drop ashes of a father. when you give them to the ash lady in firelink she sells infinite embers. so awesome!!!

                • Calamity Ring = DS1 Pendant12 Sep 2016 09:42  

                  Obviously from the description, this is a troll item. People put it on for some "special effect" buts just FromSoft trolling you. The description: "a thing quietly passed down amongst its most fervent adherents, some of whom become convinced the task has been bestowed upon them as a sacred duty." references loosely to players, who desperately seek answers when there are none, just like the pendant.

                  • Why ring?!21 Jun 2016 02:10  

                    Why not have the player earn more souls or somthing at least? Not everyone would go for a double damage no benefit ring in the name of challenge. Couldnt it be like fire clutch ring, maybe like 25% more physical damage? I know take double damage, but deal double damage is OP as hell, all them spellers and heavy hitters would lose their bananas over it. I wish it would at least give us cool glowing red eyes or an epic aura.

                    • Kalameet..19 Jun 2016 20:16  

                      Biggest troll in Dark Souls history. Gave us an extremely challenging boss fight and of all the things he dropped... was this ring... Why do i feel like Gough is laughing up in his tower after we get this ring?

                      • I swear I saw an animation by this ring...12 Jun 2016 05:36  

                        So this was around the end April, I had actually been summoned as a Blade of Darkmoon to a players aid, it was in the Archdrake Peak, I ran towards the bonfire and saw the invader attacking the host, who was rolling, and died moments after, but during the tiny little end of the fight I saw, I swear I saw the 'kalameet eye' effect hovering over the world masters head, but it was a bit larger. I seriously don't know if this was caused by lag in a rare occurrence where the world master had used the dragon head stone and the animation from that lingered and I mistook it for something else, I'm actually doing a calamity ring playthrough to see if there is anything it may do, but just thought I'd share that, idk if anyone else has had anything similar or at least knows what would be a common thing I could of mistaken it for if there is some, because this had me really wondering about it.

                        • Tear stone rings maybe?05 Jun 2016 18:06  

                          Maybe its for a tearstone ring build or something? <br/><br/>Maybe counter damage is affected by the amount of damage that you had taken? <br/><br/>Maybe wearing it through NG plus, gives you some super special item? <br/><br/>Maybe it is there just to give the whiners that say this game is too easy, something else to whine about? <br/>

                          • What's the point?20 May 2016 15:34  

                            Seriously. In DS1 at least there was a cool eye hovering over you that let other players know how badass you are. It really made pvp all the more sweet when you win while taking double damage. Now there is literally no point in wearing it. 1/10, only got it for the achievement.
